Home Learning 1st March

Good morning boys and girls, this will be our last virtual assembly for a few weeks! 
You have all worked extremely hard again this week. It was nice to have a fun World Book Day competition to do and you all made it a very difficult job to choose the best entry! 
The Primary 3 winner of the ‘Extreme Reading’ challenge is Isaac Anderson. Well done Isaac, I am sure those hens were a little bit uneasy having a Fantastic Mr Fox read them a story! You will get your £5 Amazon voucher on Monday! 

There were some really good entries from P2 for our ‘Extreme Reading’ competition, reading in rally cars, on car lifts and reading to frogspawn! What great ideas ! It was a very difficult task to choose but the winner is Sam who perched himself way up high and read to the calves!

We can’t wait to see you all on Monday morning ! 😊🌟😊🌟

Have a lovely weekend! 
From Mrs Hughes and Mrs McKee. 

Monday 1st March

Good morning boys and girls, this is our last week of home learning for a little while! Yeh! 
Mrs Hughes and I can’t wait to see you back in school next week. Let’s do our best this week and make it a great one! 


This week is special because it is World Book Week and we are going to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. To make it extra special each class in school is going to participate in an ‘Extreme Reading’ competition. All you have to do is to find the most extreme place to read your favourite book, take a photo of you reading your book there and ask your mum or dad to email it to Mrs Hughes on Thursday. The prize is a £5 Amazon voucher for the winner in each year group and we have a £1 book voucher for each child.

I can’t wait to see all your ideas!

World Book Day 2021 - BBC Live Lesson!

Join us for World Book Day to share a story


This year's World Book Day looks to be a very different one for schools and families alike. Whether you're at home or at school, join us for a very special Live Lesson aimed at primary pupils to celebrate books and share a story. 

This 30-minute Live Lesson, hosted by CBBC's Ben Shires and Bitesize Daily's Mr Smith and tied into key curriculum objectives for Key Stage 2/2nd Level, will be live right here on BBC Teach and on the CBBC channel on the morning of 4th March 2021 at 11:30am

We'll be learning all about themes in stories and how to identify them, hearing about the stories you've been reading and some of your favourite themes, and meeting some of the incredible people that write about them. To wrap up the Live Lesson, we'll also be holding a live question and answer session with comedian and author of the Little Badman series, Humza Arshad.

How to get involved:

  • Download our resources to accompany the Live Lesson here:
  • Send us your pupils' favourite themes and their questions for Humza Arshad and they could be featured on the Live Lesson. Send them to along with your school name. 
  • Let us know if you'll be watching by emailing your school name to, and your school name could be featured on the programme or our live commentary page.

High Five!
In this issue of High Five, we are thinking about what it means to be ‘content’. When things aren't perfect and life isn't exactly what we would choose we can still find things that are good enough. Moments of peace when we can enjoy the small things we do have. Click on the link below to access this week’s edition of HIGH FIVE:

Top Tips for Talking

You will need to read ‘Maximus and the Beanstalk’ for some of your literacy work this week. You will find the story on Bug Club for you, ask mum or dad to read it with you then you can have a go yourself!

Maximus and the Beanstalk is like the story of Jack and the Beanstalk but told from the giant’s point of view. Who do you think is the baddie and who is the goodie in this story? 

‘Fairytales and Castles’ is our topic, here are some castles that can be found in Northern Ireland. Maybe you have been to some of them? Have a look at the features. Maybe you could visit some of them in the summer time.

Returning to school! 
Reception, P1 P2 & P3 children will return to school on Monday 8th March for two weeks. Please could children return all resources, books and completed work to school on Monday 8th. Packs for P4-7 will be available for collection on Monday 8th from 9am to 11am. 
School will run as normal starting at 9am and finishing at 1:45pm each day. School dinners will be available and a morning bus.
As it has been a little while from the children have been in school, please remind them about social distancing and hand washing. We would like to re-assure parents that each class will stay in their bubble and all toys and resources will be sanitised after use. 


Here is little flier to help mums and dads support children and prepare them for returning to school.

Sam really reached the extremities with his reading! I am sure those calves never had a bedtime story like that ever before Sam! Well done!

Joanna has been reading in a very extreme position! Well done Joanna!

Some extreme reading from Lois, reading her favourite book to Penny!

Mina took her frog book to read to the frogspawn!! What a brilliant idea!

Jamie found a cool place to read. In a rally car!!

Caleb has decided to read in the attic!

Harry taking a break from some work to some extreme reading!!

Oh no! Fantastic Mr Fox has got in with the hens!! I hope he keeps reading and doesn't get hungry! (Great Idea Isaac Anderson!)

The World Book Day Song by MC Grammar.

I love this! How many stories do you know in this song?

Zoe has found a not so comfy place to read! Good balancing Zoe!

Amelia looking very comfy with all her cuddly toys in her teddy den! What a great place to curl up with a good book!
